Product Review | FUNLOCKA
Is this your new team building or staff rewards program?
A few weeks ago, we were lucky enough to be invited to a VIP FUNsession by FUNLOCKA. We dined at nel. Restaurant out of hours, got to meet Chef Nelly himself, put the chef whites on, plated a (not so perfect) plate and played a taste testing game that had even the foodies in the room scratching their head. What was this event and how can you experience it? Allow us to introduce you to your new best friend for staff incentives and rewards – FUNLOCKA.

We then sat for lunch and enjoyed the dish plated by Nelly – looking a whole lot better and tasting delicious! After lunch, the dessert was served – a scrumptious-looking ice cream on a stick. While eating dessert the guests were asked to guess all 10 ingredients in the dish – the winner was our very own Fiona!
How can you use FUNLOCKA?
I’d never tried VR before and it seemed a bit odd to be put in separate dark padded rooms with a headset for a date night. That all became insignificant however when faced with the amazing and immersive experience offered. We got our headsets and controllers and suddenly became uber cool metal plated agents ready to save the world. A mix of escape room and gaming the ‘levels’ were challenging enough that we needed to work together but simple enough to be good fun rather than stressful. All in all, it was a brilliant night out that would be perfect for team building and parties and something I wouldn’t have tried had it not been for FUNLOCKA! Unrelated, but worthy of noting, is that after my FUNsession, we had dinner at one of my favourite Event Birdie restaurants – Olio Kensington St.
